Banana Growers' Bushfire Appeal

Help our Aussie BANANA growers affected by the devastating East Coast bushfires.

This Go Fund Me campaign aims to raise much needed funds to assist banana growers in NSW and Queensland recover from bushfires that have devastated their farms. Growers have so far suffered hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage.

(This campaign is being run by Vicki McCudden, chair of the Nambucca Banana Growers' Association.  James Pekin will distribute funding. This campaign  is supported by the Australian Banana Growers’ Council, Cassowary Coast Banana Growers’ Association and the Nambucca Banana Growers’ Association.)

On the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, two growers have lost their entire crop, packing sheds and income for 12 months. Others – both in NSW and one in Queensland - have lost plantings, infrastructure and machinery.

While there are only a relatively small number of banana farms affected, the businesses are smaller operations - often with just one or a handful of people working on the farm. This means the road to clean-up and recovery is a long one.

100 per cent of funds will be distributed to bushfire affected banana growers.
